CASE Study Challenge



It's Thursday and time for another round of CASE Study challenge! We had awesome response with our first challenge and we hope you play again this week because we have yet another great sponsor! Really Reasonable Ribbon is our sponsor for this week and Bonnie the owner is really kind to us some fabulous ribbon to work with :)

Did you notice that I used four different patterned paper for the background? It's a mix of Lush paper from My Mind's Eye and Girl Paperie (I just love the pink!). I distressed the edges with white paint and tea dye ink to create the worn out look. Love it! You know that I don't own a sewing machine so instead of spending time on handstitching, I choose the faux stitch rub-on tape by Daisy D's :) It's really cool and so easy to use. Just glide it on your card as you would with a tape runner and voila.....faux stitching in seconds! You likey? They are available for sale at Smidapaper.



Thanks so much for stopping by!
